Angus Taylor Joins the Wind Farm Rumble to Save Rugby & Rye Park

A little while back, in covering what “community division” caused by wind farms really means, we touched on a developer’s “community consultation” that took place at Rye Park (near Goulburn) in NSW (see our post here). The “community consultation” in question was held by Epuron – an outfit hoping to develop what it calls the […]

Kelly O’Dwyer & Angus Taylor Join in a Wreck the RET Duet

With the RET Review Panel sharpening their axes – and all set to recommend the abolition of the mandatory RET – the wagons are being circled within Coalition ranks.

Wind Industry Built on the Graves of 6,000 Australian Manufacturing Workers

As the RET Review Panel sharpens their axes, Members of the Coalition are making it known that the mandatory Renewable Energy Target simply has to go.

The Snowy Scheme: Time to Do it Again

If Australia was serious about building a renewable energy future it certainly wouldn’t be pouring $billions in REC Tax into the pockets of Union Superfund backed wind power outfits like Pac Hydro, or near bankrupt circuses like Infigen. If bang for renewable buck is what we’re after then we ought to be pumping all of […]

Joe Hockey keen to scrap Infigen’s “utterly offensive” Lake George Wind Farm

**** In our last post we covered the Alan Jone’s interview with Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey that’s sent the wind industry and its parasites into a tailspin.

Angus Taylor: ACT Wind Power Plan Corporate Welfare on steroids

**** True to form, Angus “the Enforcer” Taylor has gone on the front foot over the Power Purchase Agreement signed between Infigen and the ACT.

Angus Taylor: Infigen’s backdoor deal with ACT will triple power prices in Canberra

*** Infigen (aka Babcock and Brown) are DESPERATE to flog their wind farm interests in Australia and head back home to the US. They have a stack of planned and approved wind farms in Victoria and NSW, but haven’t got a snowball’s chance in hell of building any of them without a Power Purchase Agreement […]

Greg Hunt & Ian Macfarlane: aka “Dumb” and “Dumber”

STT has raised one or two suspicions about Ian “Macca” Macfarlane’s unseemly connections with his mates at Infigen (aka Babcock & Brown) and we’ve entertained the odd doubt about young Gregory Hunt.
